Sorc Violation Nerf is a bit too much

    I'm not sure why this even needed to be fixed as Sorc was already in a good place but the current nerf to violation is a bit ridiculous. Violation is supposed to be one of Sorc's main high damage skills and after the nerf it does less damage than the left and right auto attacks. Here is a clip from Macilus's stream which illustrates how bad it is in PvP:

    This is just seems very broken. There is absolutely no reason violation should do less PvP damage than an auto attack. If you're worried about Sorc's hystria grind speed then you should simply reverse the violation nerf and then slightly nerf it's PvE damage... but honestly there was no need for the nerf. Removing the aggro from blades of darkness and buffing everyone else's aggro pull to 10 was more than enough to balance out everyone's hystria grind speed.

    This is absolutely unnacceptable.

    Sorc is already the hardest most unforgiving class to play and they go and do this? Massive nerf to PvE grinding and sustained damage in general. On top of the blade of darkness nerf.

    There is no way in hell they actually meant to make Violation do less damage THAN ****ING AUTO ATTACKS!

    THIS NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO ASAP!

    So Sorcs will no longer be able to grind places like Hystria with 220~230 AP? So, they have to be like everyone else and get more AP?

    Hmmm.. :o

    According to the patch notes they fixed a bug.

    Unfortunately Sorc made ample use of that bug.

    Maybe they'll apply a buff to the skill now that it's working properly, who knows.

    You forgot an 'r' there in 'stoker', btw.

    I don't know why they are complaining. They should be thankful they aren't tamer.

    It sucks man but it looks like sorc had a bug that the last level of violation staked dmg with its previous lvl, blame the debs for letting this bug happen for such a long time

    Sorc has been un-awakened lol.

    I'm looking at the scythe skills, and not a single one is good for grinding anything (let alone Hystria lol). You might as well un-equip the scythe and revert back to amulet grinding for PvE. Im thinking to spec out of Violation and go into Black Wave lol.

    Not many good PvP skills on the scythe. Theres almost no point in pvp either.

    its total fine. its called justice. all the FOTM sorc reroller who though they getting easy life in hystria are now cucked.

    Also not even to mention that the Objects can only aggro 1 additional mob... goodluck tanking Hystria with the "blades" now.

    same goes for Witch Poison Field. it only aggros 1 mob. instead of 7 mobs before..
